The village enjoys a particularly mild microclimate, and is renowned for its splendid gardens where lush citrus trees grow. That’s the reason why Buggiano Castello is known as il Borgo degli Agrumi. You can catch glimpses of these wonderful gardens while walking along the village’s picturesque alleys. The gardens are private and can be visited during the special event La Campagna dentro del mura.
Amongst the narrow streets of the borgo and through a large iron gate, you can see the amazing 16th century Villa Pichi Sermolli, painted with the characteristic red color from Pompei, or rosso pompeiano. The Villa, that offers elegant accommodations and features rooms with frescoes, is all surrounded by a delightful garden in the Baroque style with a fabulous panoramic terrace enjoying a fantastic panorama stretching all across the valley, to get to San Gimignano and Volterra.
